Doing this Odd Couple series has made me realize that the human need to make "sense" of what we see is very strong. No matter how bizarre or unlikely a combination may be, our minds go right to work forging connections, searching for ways to rationalize why these objects are together.
As I worked on this painting I began to feel it was not such a strange combination as I first thought. I began thinking of "banana boats" and how early cargos were transported on sailing ships. And of course, what does a sailing ship have plenty of?...rope.
